Did you ever find a product that you absolutely loved and couldn't live without?? My achilles heel is Maxwell House International Cafe - Orange. I've been drinking this wonderful stuff since 1984. Regular coffee doesn't set well with me AT ALL, so when an old boyfriend introduced me to this wonderful elixir, I was hooked!!
I used to buy it by the case at Save Mart for $4.00 a can. Then I found it at Target one day for a measly $3.00. Low and behold while cruising the internet, I found it at Walmart Online for $2.89 with free shipping. Then it happened!!! DISASTER!! I heard a nasty rumor that it was going to be discontinued. NOOOOOOOO!! Even so, I was still able to find it here and there until yesterday. My coffee of choice for over 31 years is gone. How could this be?? I alone must be keeping the market going, although I admit I only have one cup a day. I even reduced my consumption to half a cup in order for my hoarded stash to last a little longer. I have SIX cans left.
When the final cup goes down my throat, I'm going to cry!! Oh I've tried the other versions that they are still producing, but they are WAY too sweet. This is the only one that tastes something like regular coffee. I wish there was some way to keep it going or reproduce it myself ... like copycat recipes ... but alas (big sigh) I'm destined to drink hot water for breakfast!!
Oh ... and it's still DISASTER for Central California ... that rain yesterday at my house lasted for about 30 minutes. The sun came out washing away all chances of rain in the next two weeks!! They did get some snow in the Sierras, but nowhere near enough. Maybe people will finally started conserving a little, like I did with my coffee, to make it last a little longer!!
